BMW Concept X5 eDrive revealed

BMW has unveiled a concept X5 eDrive ahead of its public debut at next month’s Frankfurt Motor Show.

The concept combines the xDrive intelligent all-wheel-drive system with a plug-in hybrid drive.

The concept uses a twin-turbo four-cylinder engine and a 95bhp electric motor, which gets its energy from a lithium-ion battery and can be charged from any domestic power socket.

In purely EV mode the concept can travel up to 19 miles at speeds of up to 75mph, while the average fuel consumption is 74.3mpg. Not bad for a big SUV. There are three driving modes available:intelligent hybrid, pure electric and a save battery mode.

Visually the X5 eDrive is distinguished from the standard model with new roof rails, different exhaust tips, new 21-inch alloy wheels, electric blue accents and eDrive badges.

For full details see the press release below.
